Build, Share and Download Fonts with FontStruct

Posted · Category: CC License, Fonts

FontStruct is a free font-building tool brought to you by FontShop. FontStruct lets you quickly and easily create fonts constructed out of geometrical shapes, which are arranged in a grid pattern, like tiles or bricks. Once you’re done building, FontStruct generates high-quality TrueType fonts, ready to use in any Mac or Windows application.

You can keep your creations to yourself, but we encourage users to share their “FontStructions”. Explore the Gallery of fonts made by other FontStruct users and download them or even copy them and make your own variations. Some of the fonts within the Gallery looks really good and professional. Have you created your own fonts yet?

    That is a really good idea, and looks like they’ve pulled it off well.

    It’s good finding things that are just done really nicely.

    I wonder what people who give their lives and careers to type design would say about a tool like this?

    While I’ve not done type design, I’ve read a lot about what goes into the process. A tool like this would seem to simply the process so much that much if not all of the nuance and beauty of actual type design would be gone.

    I don’t know, but this seems sketchy…

    Very nice tool! Under which licence are the fontstructions released?

    As a designer, you can select whatever Creative Commons license you wish to apply to your FontStructions. See the Licensing page.
